## University Laboratory Grinds

 This article is incomplete. You can help the Fallen London Wiki by expanding it. Reason: With recent changes to the Lab, lab research is rather less predictable. For instance, having a Secret College is helpful, and being a Correspondent with a high Scholar of the Correspondence level can be quite helpful. Because cards are undiscardable, the laboratory is harder to control.

### Investigating Impossible Theorems

Requirements:

• 250
• 275
• 292
• 10
• 10 and 2
• 7
• 3
• Either completed Ambition and laboratory services from respective assistant or

Steps:

• Research an Impossible Theorem - 1 action.
• Generate 13000 with Use what you know of the unknowable - number of actions depends on level. 10 takes 482 actions, 11 takes 449 actions, 12 takes 434 actions, 13 takes 420 actions, 14 takes 407 actions, 15-16 takes 394 actions, 17-20 takes 383 actions. whatever means necessary
• Have a firm conversation with the Freeloading Artist and Enter the mirror - 1.8 actions, since leftover Honey can be used in further experiments.
• this is not explicitly necessary if you are keeping the artist around through the whole experiment - you *will* draw his card. a lot. in fact, considering his card is a <2.5 EPA grind, it's better to get his honey first and then kick him out - which means we do not, in fact, have him still when we enter parabola.
• Generate 300 with either your Ambition assistant (April takes 25 actions, Cora Bagley takes 22 actions, Esurient Smith or Hephaesta take 15 actions) or Visionary Student (takes 22 actions and generates 22 CP ).
• this might be easier with getting an initial boost of ParabResearch
• or consulting mirrors? How does consulting mirrors compare research-wise/nightmare-wise against jumping through the mirror?
• if I don't have the artist in this scenario, is using 21*(14 from Visionary student) = 294 + 7 from ...anyone but Meticolous student better? (1 actions more, but 1 Nightmares CP less)
• it might actually be better to hire the Urchin for this part, with his 12 PR/A, but no Nightmares, and whatever chance of failure we have in this scenario, depending on Dangerous. costs 2 actions more, though
• Hide in your Base-Camp - with 75% at 250, on average it takes 4 actions and gives 1 CP to remove 11 CP . Removing Nightmares from the final step (assuming repeated experiments) takes 1.45 actions and gives 0.36 CP , while using Visionary Student adds 8 actions and 2 CP.
• Sneak away from your wounds - 0.12/0.78 actions to remove 0.36/2.36 CP .
• check: if I do not mirror-jump, is it cheaper maybe to farm the nightmares off by other means in London?
• Reach a realisation. Drag the knowledge kicking and screaming out of Parabola - with 33% at 275, on average it takes 3 actions and gives 4 CP .

EPA:

• With April - (1 + 482/449/434/420/407/394/383 + 1.8 + 25 + 1.45 + 0.12 + 3) 514.37/481.37/466.37/452.37/439.37/426.37/415.37 actions for 1562.60 . 3.03/3.24/3.35/3.45/3.55/3.66/3.76 EPA.
• With Cora Bagley - (1 + 482/449/434/420/407/394/383 + 1.8 + 22 + 1.45 + 0.12 + 3) 511.37/478.37/463.37/449.37/436.37/423.37/412.37 actions for 1562.60 . 3.05/3.26/3.37/3.47/3.58/3.69/3.78 EPA.
• With Esurient Smith/Hephaesta - (1 + 482/449/434/420/407/394/383 + 1.8 + 15 + 1.45 + 0.12 + 3) 504.37/471.37/456.37/442.37/429.37/416.37/405.37 actions for 1562.60 . 3.09/3.31/3.42/3.53/3.63/3.75/3.85 EPA.
• With Visionary Student - (1 + 482/449/434/420/407/394/383 + 1.8 + 22 + 9.45 + 0.78 + 3) 520.03/487.03/472.03/458.03/445.03/432.03/421.03 actions for 1562.60 . 3/3.2/3.31/3.41/3.51/3.61/3.71 EPA.

Higher / and profession can very slightly improve EPA, reducing the number of actions spent failing/reducing menaces/generating Honey.

### Investigating Queenly Attar

Requirements:

• 292
• 10
• Either completed Ambition and laboratory services from respective assistant or , 3, 250 and 10

Steps:

EPA:

• With April/Cora Bagley - (1 + 17/16/15/14 + 1.8 + 2 + 1) 22.8/21.8/20.8/19.8 actions for 62.5 . 2.74/2.86/3/3.15 EPA.

profession can very slightly improve EPA, reducing the number of actions spent generating Honey.

### Forging Infernal Sharpshooter's Rifles

 This article is incomplete. You can help the Fallen London Wiki by expanding it. Reason: With recent changes to the Lab, the Infernal Sharpshooter's Rifle is a multistage project, with slightly different lab research requirements

• Completed or and laboratory services from respective assistant.
• Sufficiently-advanced Railway - and 6 (optional)

Steps:

• Watchful 330/Equipment 7/no Railway - 73.28 actions for 210 , 2.86 EPA.
• Watchful 275/Equipment 7/Railway - 76 actions for 450 (228.6 assuming conversion via ), 3 EPA.
• Watchful 330/Equipment 7/Railway - 74.28 actions for 450 (228.6 assuming conversion via ), 3.07 EPA.

• Watchful 330/Equipment 9/Railway - 64.65 actions for 450 (228.6 assuming conversion via ), 3.53 EPA.

### Creating Cartographer's Hoards

Requires having completed

Having Hephaesta work with a level 5 gives on Success and on failure which averages out at roughly 2.84 EPA.

Of course using an Fate upgraded lab is better here getting you roughly 3.28 EPA. Having the teach students also slightly improves this grind.
